Hi,

I have to write GMAT in next 15 days and I am still struggling with RC and CR.
I have given the following mock tests with the scores mentioned alongside:

GMAT Prep 1 (620)
MGMAT#1 (640)
GMAT Prep 1 Repeat (710)
MGMAT#2 (590)
Kaplan#1 (680)
MGMAT#3 (600)
GMAT Prep 2 (690)

As you can see in all of the MGMAT tests I have faired below 650.
Barring first attempt at GMAT Prep test I have faired rather well with scores above 680.
I am not sure which scores to believe with respect to my performance and preparation.

If we leave that aside, the main problem I have is with RC followed by CR. I just cannot seem to get RC right.
Most of the times I am confused between two answer choices and it seems that I always end up picking the wrong one. In CR also the same thing is happening.

I have not followed any book for RC. For CR I have studied from PowerScore CR Bible.
Can someone suggest how I can improve in these two areas within next 15 days.

Are there any particular areas that you are weak in? Study your results carefully and identify your weak spots.Then practice them from any good book you have or re-read that specific area from manhattan guide or your powerscore guide.
Also see if you're messing up the high level questions(the 700+ level).. Then you only need to practice tough questions and your score will improve.

Best of luck for GMAT.

Hit kudos if my post is helpful.

Hi hinarastogi,

For RC, try watching this video demonstration on how to focus on key words in the passage: http://www.gmatpill.com/practice-questi ... -guide-rc/

Reading a book on how to do reading - that seems a bit counter-intuitive. We believe books have limited benefit for the reading passage.

CR - is much like math in terms of the logic. But the wording can get quite complicated. For practice with CR, try:
